A Vow

Sun, 01/25/2015 - 01:45 -- NLove

I made a vow to never speak of the feelings that I have for you. 

If I told you, I know you would quickly dismiss my words and tell me to move on because I am too young, you are not the one, and there is already another girl you are waiting on.

These are all of the words I know you will say. Words I cannot bear to hear.

However, I do hope one day you’ll come to learn of my feelings. Hear what you meant to me and see how you have shaped me into a better person. 

All I can do now is just smile with my tongue clamped down and fingers crossed behind my back hoping you’ll look into my eyes and see all of my secrets I hold within.
